The National Centre for Writing’s mission is to put literature at the heart of contemporary culture. Through pioneering and collaborative projects we explore the artistic and social power of creative writing and literary translation.
We have transformed Dragon Hall, a medieval merchant’s hall in Norwich, a UNESCO City of Literature, into the National Centre for Writing. Opened in June 2018, it will be a new space where established and emerging writers are supported and nurtured, where the best in world literature is made easily accessible to audiences and readers, and which benefits local communities through innovative education programmes.
The National Centre for Writing has experienced an outstanding period of achievement and growth, becoming England’s leading literature development body. A driving force behind the rapid development of the Norwich's creative industries, the Centre for Writing led the successful bid in 2012 for the city to be recognised as a UNESCO City of Literature.
